    Could you help me find out your answer, wherein you answered how ...

    Is the below sentence correct? Does it sound awkward and unnatural? Please restructure it.

    "Could you help me find out your answer, wherein you answered how to give a speech along with your experience of giving a speech by memorizing it verbatim as a boy."(while requesting a friend for the page containing the answer he gave long back)
    P.S. Please correct any errors above.

    It's awkward. We almost never use the word wherein, and verbatim is redundant.

    This would work: Could you help me find the post where you explained how to give a speech and described how, as a boy, you memorized one before you presented it?

    Does putting "as a boy" make the sentence confusing? Is it awkward to use it that way?

    Also, please give me one more, or more restructured sentences(what can I use instead of "one more, or more"?). It will help me understand restructuring sentences better.

    Thank you.

    As a boy, when set off by commas, is natural. It's not awkward or confusing.

    I don't understand the other request in your post. Can you ask again in different words?

    Thank you very much.

    I requested you to restructure the same sentence in a different manner so that I'll know how to restructure sentences better. Different ways of putting the same sentence helps my brain to meaningfully shuffle the words better. Also, would you now please correct my previous post, as you said you it was not understandable?

    Does putting "as a boy" at the end(like in the original sentence)make the sentence confusing? Is it awkward to use it that way?

    P.S. Please correct any errors above.
